I've just purchased a license for phpStorm. Mainly because I think the editor is state of the art, BUT.
Using IDE's like Coda it is much simpler to get the whole workflow of creating a project, adding some code and run it in a browser on Apache on localhost going.
I'm a bit confused about where to configure what. It should be easy to create a PHP/Web project and just hit a shortcut to run the page in a browser through localhost.
I'm having difficulities setting up this workflow in phpStorm.
I have my webroot in /Users/chris/Sites and create projects within that directory.
I would like to just be able to "run" the project with a shortcut so it would appear in my default browser as a web application, not as a console php script.
What would be the correct way of defining "localhost" to be the default webserver and how would I go about configuring phpStorm to have a keyboard shortcut to launch the project/file in my default browser?
I miss a feature to select via a dropdown the browser to use and launch via "localhost" without any debugging or anything, just a simple way to "run" the project.
In Coda everything "just works" after creating a site and launching the preferred browser via the IDE.
